Charlie Daniels plans DVD release
Friday, September 26, 2008 – Charlie Daniels will release a live concert DVD package "Preachin', Prayin', Singin' with Charlie Daniels & Friends: Live From Nashville," Koch Records on Nov. 11.
Daniels performed in Nashville in 2005 to debut songs from his Grammy-nominated bluegrass-gospel album "Songs From the LongLeaf Pines." Daniels surprised his Country Music Hall of Fame audience by inviting several of his personal bluegrass heroes up on the Ford Theater stage to jam. Guest pickers included Mac Wiseman, members of the Scruggs family (Earl, Gary and Randy) and McCoury family (Del, Ronnie and Rob) as well as singers Sharon, Cheryl and Buck White.
The DVD features commentary from Daniels as he reflects back on the early days of The Charlie Daniels Band, playing with The Earl Scruggs Review in the late '60s and the music of close friend Wiseman.
Other features include intimate interviews and behind-the-scenes conversations with Daniels, Scruggs, Wiseman and others who participated.
